A dad has been hailed a “genius” after sharing his simple hack to reseal a packet of biscuits once it has been opened.
Digging into a new pack is usually a point of no return and a welcome excuse to polish off the lot through fear they will go stale, but a video shared on TikTok has offered a second solution.
Many frustrated viewers argued the handy hack was nothing new, but it racked up 1.2 million views as plenty of others admitted they had no idea about the ‘life changing’ method.
It was shared by @Jademhall with the caption: “Dad wants to show you his biscuit packet hack to keep them sealed”, before adding a disclaimer that she is well aware some people already use it in expectation of the comments to follow.
The dad uses a knife to slice through the unopened packet rather than pulling the red tab to ensure a cleaner break, removing the top two biscuits.
He then takes out the biscuits to enjoy and flips over the separated section of packaging, placing it back inside on top of the next biscuit as a lid to keep them fresh. You can see the technique in the video above.
And it turns out it had never occurred to many biscuit fans, as one commented to say: “Your dad’s a genius, thank you sir!”
A second wrote: “Ma’am, your dad is living in 2040” as another added: “Where has this hack been my whole life!?!?”
Others said it was “scary how many people don’t already do this”, adding they had been using the trick for years.
But some pointed out that both sides of the argument were wrong, writing: “Only for biscuit amateurs this resealing malarkey.”
A second said: “Wait does this mean no excuses to eat the rest of the biscuits now?”
